Aussie media have flocked to the Melbourne exhibition of ‘The Art of Banksy’, with the showcase now being extended until Tuesday January 31.

Known as one of the leading contemporary artists of his generation, The Art of Banksy exhibition is the only chance to see this amazing collection of Banksy’s artwork in Australia.

The unique experience features more than 80 original works, presenting the largest collection of Banksy artwork to ever draw upon Australia.

The exhibition has received rave reviews from the likes of Concrete Playground, who said, “If it sounds epic, that’s because it is,”, while Timeout added, “The Art Of Banksy will serve as a welcome reminder of the explosive impact of the artist’s works, and of the powerful potential of street art. And that can’t be a bad thing.”

Residing at The Paddock, Federation Square, (in the dodgy car park, behind the good car park, behind Federation Square) the exhibition is open daily from 10am until January 31.

As well as being immersed amongst some of Banksy’s original works, including the iconic Girl with Balloon, Flag Wall and Laugh Now pieces, visitors can also take in the artwork displayed by some of Melbourne’s local artists, such as Adnate, Kaffeine and Sirum.

If that doesn’t quench your thirst, craft beers and summer favourite cocktails will be served at the exhibition’s own Circle summer Bar and visitors can chill out and relax in the huge Railyard Beer Garden area.

Inspired by the streets of London, the exhibition takes visitors on an artistic adventure, exploring the mind of Banksy and his satirical street art. Famous for his graffiti stencilling technique, Banksy’s artwork combines dark humour with underlying political messages and social themes, and is arguably the most famous, yet enigmatic artist to dominate the contemporary world.

Curated by Steve Lazarides, former manager of Banksy, the works come from his own collection and other private collectors.

“This exhibition is a one off – never will you be able to see this amount of work in one place again. Once the show is over, the artwork will dissipate back to the other 40 collectors around the world, and the likelihood of them being brought together again in the future is very slim,” said Lazarides.
